Affordable R&D Startup Space

Starting any company is hard, but bringing a new technology to market is even harder. 

 

Inventopia focuses on providing resources for "tough tech" companies - those that require up-front R&D, prototyping and testing.

 

The paradox for tough tech entrepreneurs is that doing this kind of development work is expensive; yet it is hard to raise capital if you havent aready done that work.

 

Inventopia exists to break this paradox.   We provide low-cost access to cutting edge laboratory and prototyping technologies so that you can spend less time and money on raising money, and more time on doing the work.
